Totally inspired by today's episode of Yuri on Ice because...OH MY GOD I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY REALLY DID!  *dies*  Like there was chatter on the Cruncyroll threads and I was rolling my eyes because yeah yeah let's keep it real and SHIT THEY WENT THERE!

Anway...*coughs* today's (very short) advent story is brought to you by round and gold.  HA!

Susan noticed it on Tuesday.  Agent Yuy dropped off some paperwork for the Director and offered to sign the birthday card for Agent Disher circulating the office.  Something glinted out of the corner of her eye and she glanced over catching sight of a gold band resting on his left hand.

Mouth open she couldn’t pull her eyes away, that was definitely a ring on his finger, glowing in the light as he braced himself against the desk while he scribbled his message.  Signing with a flourish he handed the pen to her with a nod and walked away.

“Holy smokes.”

Flying out of her chair, Susan all but sprinted down the hall.  Bursting into the break room she looked wildly around, spotting several colleagues and a couple agents sitting around the table.

“Heero Yuy got married!”  She practically shrieked the news, throwing herself into the chair across from Pam in HR and Agent Donner from Cyber Crime.  “He’s wearing a ring!”

By Thursday, the gossip was flying.  Some said he was wearing it for an undercover mission.  Others said he’d finally proposed to Relena Peacecraft, after all they’d been seen having lunch together just the day before.  Several people placed bets on it being another agent and for a while it seemed like you couldn’t get to the coffee pot for the crowd of people staring not so discretely at every hand holding a mug.

By Monday of the next week, nobody in the agency seemed the wiser for where the ring came from or who the lucky person might be.  Susan, who felt guilty for starting the whole thing, almost wanted to work up the nerve to ask Yuy flat out.

Wednesday rolled round and she was sitting at her desk per usual when Agent Maxwell wandered in.  He really only worked part-time, coming in on cases when they needed his expertise, though Susan wasn’t entirely certain what that was.  He was cute though and always stopped and chatted with her when he was in.

He was leaned forward now, gesturing wildly in the middle of a story about space pirates trying to board a passenger airplane, not realizing it was full of Preventer agents headed to a conference on L3, when she saw it.

Swinging gently on a simple chain around his neck was a gold ring.  She would bet her first born child that the match to it currently sat on Heero Yuy’s left hand.

Glancing up she realized Agent Maxwell had followed her gaze and noticed the dangling ring.  Raising a finger to his lips, he offered her a wink and tucked it back into his shirt.

Susan solemnly nodded, making a zipping motion herself.  She watched him stride away, humming a tune and smiled happily.  Some secrets were too good to share.

Not very long but light hearted!  I have an idea for tomorrow and I think it's going to be longer but I teach six classes so I might not have much brain power by the time I get home.  We'll see.

Why do I suspect that Duo did that on purpose to end the gossip and rumors?

I'm not sure, I mean he did ask her to keep it a secret. Maybe Heero asked him to keep it quiet?

I was thinking Heero traced the gossip back to the source and figured if she knew and was sworn to secrecy she would help quash the gossip. On the other hand I do tend to overthink things.

Duo staking his claim! And office gossip is so much like your description, it's faster than the speed of light. I love marriage stories so much.

Seriously! And if you throw a break room into the mix it's just begging to be spread around! (Marriage stories make me feel all warm and fuzzy too. hehe)

For some reason, I get the feeling the only time Duo wears his ring on the chain is when he has to go to the office. I'm sure they won't be keeping it a secret for too long. :-)

I'd planned to put in some line about how Heero can wear is ring but due to Duo's line of work (doing machinery and stuff in the junk yard, so he wears his ring around his neck...)but it didn't work with the flow of the story so now it's all up to whatever interpretation you want. :)

Oh, I LOVE a good 'outside point of view' fic, and you did this one total justice! And totally nailed the flow of a good rumor mill...

Oh I know! I am such a sucker for the outside POV. I just love it so hard.
